I have been posting so many photos from my Europe trip recently, and in turn have been getting a bunch of questions about what we did, where we went and where we stayed. Spending the holidays in Paris was a dream I never knew I had, but it is something I would love to experience again and again. Patrick and I were in Paris at the end of November into early December. I loved this time of year because everything was set up for Christmas, yet there were still the most amazing Autumn colors. It was truly magical! We were lucky to not have much rain, although there is something nostalgic about hiding away from the rain in a Parisian Café.
First official post of 2018!!!
I swear the years start to fly by faster and faster as we get older. I have so many personal and professional goals this year, but for some reason they don’t seem as daunting as they used to. The first week in January is the most awkward time for everyone, but I incorporated a few goals this year that are keeping me inspired and on track, so I thought i’d share them with you in the hopes that it connects with someone!
I think this might have been one of the hardest secrets i’ve ever had to keep!! One of my favorite brands, who I am insanely fortunate to be able to work with, just launched the most beautiful collection of watches I have ever seen!! MVMT is always setting the tone when it comes to watches and this new drop just completely changed the game. The Gala Collection brings a touch of old Hollywood glamour and isa sultry finishing touch to every look.
I am so excited to finally announce the launch of of Hammitt’s newest styles!! I have been obsessed with Hammit for YEARS – and I swear each new collection just gets better and better. I love this grey and tan color combo for transitioning into fall and you will love all of the little pockets for convenience! I always put my keys, wallet and phone in the outside zipper pocket for easy access and then my makeup, brush (yes I always carry a brush lol), etc. in the main compartment. Love a well-thought-out design.
***Proud girlfriend moment. ***
Patrick has spent the last 3 years taking the CFA exam, all while excelling in his career, landing his dream job, giving me his very little free time and agreeing to be a part-time model (okay but can you blame me for wanting a million pictures of him?). If you are familiar with the exam then you know how proud I am to say he passed the 3rd and final exam after 3 years and countless hours of studying. Every single day he amazes me more and inspires me in the most powerful ways. We are so glad it is OVER and we have our weekends back for good!!!
Sorry for the random mushy love post, but I am so proud I can’t contain it! I just made reservations at Acquerello in Russian Hill to celebrate. Have any of you been?! I heard it’s incredible!
There is nothing better than seeing hard work pay off. I hope you are all having a great week! Work hard, then play harder.
All my love! xx
